Life, Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D), and Disability Insurance

We provide Basic Life and AD&D insurance at no cost to you if you are an eligible employee. You may also apply for Supplemental Life insurance for yourself and your families at a competitive group rates, in addition to any employer-paid Basic Life insurance already in force. This is because we recognize that our employees have different financial needs. 

Your disability insurance is designed to pay a monthly benefit in the event you cannot work for an extended period of time because of a covered illness or injury.  There is no cost for eligible employees for both the Basic Long Term Disability (LTD) and the Short Term Disability (STD) insurance. The Basic LTD becomes payable at the end of the 180 day benefit waiting period, with a voluntary LTD Buy-Up option for non-exempt employees that reduces the waiting period in half to 90 days. For exempt employees, the employer-paid STD benefits become payable after a 22 workday waiting period, during which time vacation and sick pay may be used. We provide these benefits to help you to meet your financial commitments in a time of need by replacing a portion of your income.
